The Australian Taxation Office (ATO) is taking action when international businesses haven't registered for Goods and Services Tax (GST). They identify these businesses through data-matching technology and data from sources, such as financial institutions, intelligence agencies and foreign jurisdictions.
You will need to:
- Register if the value of your sales connected to Australia is equal to or more than A$75,000 in a 12-month period. The quickest and easiest way to register is through simplified GST registration, which allows you to lodge and pay online.
- Charge GST by including it in the price when selling your products or services to consumers in Australia. The GST rate is 10% of the value of the sale or 1/11th of the amount charged for the sale.
- Report the GST collected to the ATO – you can do this by lodging a GST return or a business activity statement.
- Pay the amount of GST to the ATO by converting it to Australian dollars.
